How Eating Affects Sleep

This will change what you eat before going to bed.

Quote I Love

‘All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.’ — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Without experiments you can’t find out what’s your passion. Without experiments you can’t find new hobbies. Without experiments you can’t build habits. I run monthly experiments all the time, do you?

Have a great weekend, all
